Rome:     Fontana dell'Aracoeli
Rome: Fontana dell'Aracoeli
Acrylic on Canvas
36" x 48"

This harmonious fountain placed in Piazza d'Aracoeli, at the foot of The Campidoglio, is a creation of Giacomo della Porta, who realized it during the pontificate of Pope Sisto VI Peretti, in 1589.
The fountain is characterized by four beautiful puttos, placed on its top, pouring water from the amphorae they keep in their hands. The original basin, large and oval, has been replaced by the present one, circular, during the restoration of the 19th century.

Also, the two steps at the foot of the fountain, which created the effect of the fountain emerging from the water of the large oval basin, have been removed.

This painting will be shipped rolled in a tube. It is signed on the front and back and accompanied with a certificate of authenticity. The canvas sides are painted a neutral tone to match the painting. Take the canvas to your favorite frame store and have them stretch it onto stretcher bars.
